NCA Care-a-Thon

The NCA Care-a-Thon is a virtual FUNdraising event and temporarily replaces our 16 year NCA Walk-a-Thon tradition of a school-wide extraordinary spring fundraiser.

As a result, our school community has benefitted tremendously with all kids of donor-funded projects such as new classroom Promethean boards, STEM, safety and security upgrades and so much more.
Careful and intentional stewardship of donated funds has contributed to an educational experience like none other. 

 Why Care-a-Thon?

We are living in unprecedented times.  As a result, some of our NCA families are struggling financially with job losses, layoffs, etc.  Helping families when they need it the most is important to us as our NCA family has always come together in times of greatness and times of difficulty.  Many of our families have asked “What can we do to help?” 

How are my donations used?

The NCA Care-a-Thon is “Love in Action” and it reaches out to assist a variety of our family needs, especially tuition assistance as it will ease some financial stress and keep children learning at NCA. Join us in helping our families and students finish strong.  Every gift large or small makes a difference.  Thank you for your compassion and generosity!

Care-a-Thon t-shirts

  • There are 5 colors and 9 size options to choose from.  

  • You will make color/size selections when you set up your online fundraising account.

  • There are no t-shirt exchanges – We do not “stock” t-shirts – It is our plan to have the t-shirts to our families and staff at the end of the school year or as soon as possible.  This is the safest and economical way to keep as much of the fundraising dollars as possible going to our families in need. 

  • The t-shirts are the same brand, sizes and fit as our PE T-shirts.  It is best to guess on the “big” side.  

  • We automatically give up to 5 t-shirts per student for funds raised.  If you raise more than $175, you will need to alert us that you want more than 5 shirts
  • Students may wear the 2020-2021 Care-a-Thon t-shirt jeans every Friday of the month as a uniform alternative.
  • To best care for your t-shirt(s), wash in cold water with like colors and hang to dry.

Matching Fund employer? 

  • Some of the employers who will MATCH FUNDS are Boeing, Microsoft, and others. Check with your Human Resources department to see if your employer will match your donation.

  • Only donations made directly by an employee are eligible for matching funds. 

  • Please indicate “Employee Match and employer name” with your donation.

Your student will receive shirts on the FULL amount of the donation… including matching.  We honor the match…even before we get it.
